Essential Oils | Aromatherapy in Our Homes

Essential oils are a unique multidimensional healing tool that helps prevent imbalances on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. Essential Oils reduce stress and help to prevent future stress related issues – less muscle tension, digestive issues, sleep disruptions and mood imbalances.  The benefits of aromatherapy in assisting our Residents with sleeplessness, agitation, lack of appetite, pain and other emotional and physical ailments, have been proven repeatedly by our staff to support the Residents’ well-being.
